All You Need To Know
Frequently asked questions
What exactly is BB Glow?
BB Glow is a micro-needling facial that aims to even out skin tone & improve skin texture. It delivers a BB serum composed of 2% pigment, natural plant extracts & a variety of peptides that stimulate skin cell regeneration & collagen production. These processes improve skin imperfections including acne scars, pigmentation, wrinkles, redness & age spots. The pigment in the BB serum creates a soft glow leaving the skin with a weightless foundation like coverage that lasts months!
Do you feel any pain during or after the procedure ?
BB Glow is a pain free treatment. Your face may feel a little tingly during the procedure and the skin may be a little red after but the redness goes away within 24hrs.
What can I expect from my BB Glow session?
You Can expect the session to last up to 60 min sometimes a little longer depending on what serums you'd like to add to the treatment. During this time you can relax on the beauty bed while our talented technicians get to work. There is a skin preparation phase during which exfoliation & skin cleansing are preformed to ensure optimum results are achieved. The skin booster serums are then applied using a dermapen. During this phase the needles will feel like a makeup brush going over the skin. The BB serum is applied the same way the skin booster serums are and then the skin is left to cool off with a cooling mask. The procedure is pain free and relaxing, once its all done your skin will be glowing!
How deep do the needles penetrate the skin?
It depends on the pressure used for different areas of the face. We only use plastic nano-needles, these penetrate at a maximum of 0.8mm making the procedure comfortable & pain free. (The needles feel like a makeup brush, brushing the skin!)
Are there any side effects of the treatment ?
The treatment has no side effects, there may be an occasional redness after the procedure but it will disappear within 24hr. You may also experience slight peeling for a day or two after, this is normal and is due to the shedding of dead skin cells.
Can you tan after the treatment ?
It is not recommended that you tan before or after the treatment for at least 3 weeks. Tanning right after can aggravate the skin and cause it to flare up.
How many sessions do I need to see results?
The effect of the coverage is immediate and you will see results after the first treatment. However It takes 4-5 treatments to achieve optimum coverage & address specific skin problems. It is worth noting that optimum results are seen 3 weeks post treatment, due to the skin regeneration cycle completing in 28 days.
Is BB Glow semi-permanent makeup?
No, semi-permanent makeup introduces pigment into the papillary layer of the dermis resulting in markings on the face that can last anywhere between 1-2 years. BB Glow introduces pigment into the dermis however the pigment is only 2% of the Serum & fades away quickly if it's not topped up consistently. The serum is predominantly made up of natural ingredients aimed at skin brightening by inducing skin cell regeneration & collagen production. This allows the skin to repair itself from the inside out, making BB glow a rich & intensive skin-care treatment that purifies the skin & gives long-lasting results.
Does BB Glow help minimize pores ?
Yes, if the course of treatment is completed (usually 3-4 sessions) it will stimulate enough collagen production to reduce pore size.
Can the treatment be done if i have acne?
Yes! We have specialized BB Glow treatments for clients suffering from acne & acne scars. We don't however recommend this treatment for people with grade 3 inflammatory acne, it is best to consult with your doctor first.
Does BB Glow affect my eyebrows if I've done microblading ?
BB glow does not affect the colour of your eyebrows from the first couple of treatments, however it will in the long run. Our technicians take every care to stay away from the eyebrows in every session.
Does the BB serum block my pores ?
No! Only 2% of Iron Oxide, the raw cosmetic material found in BB cream and foundation, is in the BB serum. This percentage is too small to clog pores and fades away gradually.
Does the coverage of BB Glow feel heavy on the skin?
No. The BB serums contain a very small percentage of pigment, only 2%. This allows for lightweight coverage that doesn't clog pores.
Can the procedure be done on stretch marks ?
Absolutely! If you get it done regularly you will see a huge improvement. The intensive skin regeneration & collagen production properties of the BB serum will induce the production of new skin cells, improving skin texture and thus minimizing stretch marks.
Can I do BB Glow if I'm pregnant ?
You can, but we don't recommend it due to changes in hormone levels while pregnant. These changes can affect the skin regeneration cycle, making the treatment less effective than it would be normally.
Can I do BB Glow if I have Botox or fillers ?
You can't get BB Glow done after getting Botox or fillers in the skin. This can be extremely dangerous! You will need to wait a period of 3month after getting these procedures done before you can do BB Glow. If you have lip fillers it's safe to get BB Glow as we do not preform the treatment on the lips.
Can I Do the treatment if I get regular IPL or laser hair removal on my face?
Yes, but you have to wait for at least 3 weeks after your laser/IPL treatments to get BB Glow done. You will also have to wait 3 weeks after your BB Glow session to go back to any laser/IPL treatments.
Can I wear makeup after the BB Glow treatment ?
We recommend you refrain from wearing makeup until the next day to prevent any irritation.
